HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ossett and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Ossett property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Ossett property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it best to opt for a full structural survey prior to acquiring an abandoned, thirties garden maisonette in Ossett?

Structural surveys are now dubbed the Building Surveys. Choose a RICS Building Survey if you are thinking of buying the maisonette described. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a post fifties Ossett home of conventional construction materials. Bear in mind that a number restrictions exist with any survey - a surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the building of inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Ossett surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Ossett building will include a valuation and a rebuilding cost as part of the report. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will combine local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Ossett surveyor will also consider construction type and use key assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will also be assumed that there aren't any costly legal issues for example no laws are broken by intended use of property. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Additional local Ossett area assumptions, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Ossett environmental issues like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there is a possibility of asbestos pipe lagging insulation situated in the building. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in insulating board.

All forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to displace it. Professional advice should be sought urgently. On no account attempt to remove it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during the survey. Your Ossett surveyor should note suspected asbestos and will advise accordingly.
